  1. The nift live seat availiblity shows 0 seats available in all centers for general category. Does that mean that people with ranks of 1500 and further would not get seats..cause the counselling last date is 29 july and ine is tommorow

  2. hi
    My category rank is 1816 an common merit is 2289.
    I want to get into Textile an Fashion Communication.
    With this score is it possible to get into any 6 prime centers until round 2 counselling?

  3. Hi
    my category rank is 1814 and common merit is 2274 and I am looking for FC or Textile
    Which centers should i consider getting into?
    Also are there any chances that in 2 round counselling I might get into top 3 of gandhinagar?

  4. My category rank this year is 1814 in nift. Are there any chances of me get into gandhinagar FC or Textile in the round 2 ?

  5. Hi in NIFT my cmr is 10522 and category rank is 553(SC), which campus can i get into for FC and FD?
    can i get in to NIFT Bangalore?
    and which campus should i expect for?

  6. i have secured a general merit rank 407, and category rank (for GEN) 278, what NIFT colleges I can get into?

  7. hello, i got 853 common merit rank in mfm.
    is it a good ranking?
    do i get colleges for mfm?
    or should i try again next year?

  8. i have cleared the first phase of nift 2020…im waiting for the second phase due to corona pandemic …also im not really sure about joining nift clgs which are in really distinct areas as im from mumbai…im planning to pay my fess for other college …will it be correct to wait for my result of nift or get admission in some other clg?

  9. There seems to be a lot of disparity between the Ranks assigned by you and the cutoff merits of previous years (B F Tech)

    College. Yr Rank As per Cutoff

    Hyderabad. 6. 4
    Gandhinagar. 10. 5
    Chennai. 4. 7
    Patna. 7. 11
    Kannur. 9. 12

    I am unable to comprehend why candidates would be preferring for a lower ranked College for Admission when seats in higher Ranking colleges are available.

    May please throw some light on this.

  10. my daughter has 1023 ranking NIFT Entrance exam for BFD. suggest wich college i should have select while i am from Dehradun. counseling is on 25th
    pl advise

    • NIFT Delhi
      NIFT Bangalore
      NIFT Chennai
      NIFT Kolkata
      NIFT Mumbai

      These colleges have almost equal popularity, you can get admission anywhere among these colleges. while you have to ask some question to yourself and child.

      The distance of the institution from your place. (Yes, It matters).
      Geographical location. (Weather similar to your place or not.) etc.

    • All of the above colleges are good but it depends upon your choice may be you are looking for a college near your city so choose as per your wish.
